Rocco Mediate holed out for eagle. Again. And again. And again. And again! That’s right – In winning the Frys.com Open in San Martin, California 25-year PGA Tour veteran Rocco Mediate made four eagles by holing out an iron shot. He had a hole-in-one on the par-3 third hole Thursday to start his week, then holed out from 160 yards Friday on the par-4 fourth, and holed out from 111 yards Saturday on the par-5 15th hole. He struggled all day on Sunday but managed to stay tied for the lead before arriving at the 17th hole, a drivable par 4. Having laid up in the fairway, Rocco holed out for eagle for the fourth straight day, hitting a pitching wedge approach from 116 yards that spun back into the cup en route to a one-stroke victory over Bo Van Pelt and rookie Alex Prugh. Below are a few videos of the shots Rocco holed out in the final two rounds of the tournament.


The 47-year-old Mediate won his sixth PGA Tour title and first since 2002, finishing with a 2-over 73 for a 15-under 269 total at CordeValle. He earned $900,000 and a two-year TOUR exemption. holing out with an iron isn’t something that happens very often, and the odds of someone holing a shot on four consecutive days are astronomical. If you remember however, this has been a recent pattern for Rocco. On the final day of the Viking Classic back on October 3 just two weeks ago, Rocco holed out his wedge shot from 80 yards. Perhaps it was a sign of things to come…
